Description

Description

This grant will fund additional data collection and travel to schools for deaf children around the U.S., thus expanding the control group of typically-developing deaf children to compare to deaf children with ASD. Findings from this study will inform the eventual adaptation diagnostic and screening instruments for use with deaf and hard-of-hearing children, as well as future interventions with deaf and hard-of-hearing children with ASD.
